I Guess – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Guess – Word of the Day


Photo: keywords king.com  The guessing Jar – as a child I did once guess the contents of a jar correctly.



I Guess

That old invitation to
“guess what?”
is simply a dredging
of endless,
useless, speculation,
of dubious motive,
I guess
I don’t want to guess.

  1. I rate the “command” to guess right up there with the “command” to smile. Who are you ( being the generic any of us) to tell me or anyone else what type of expression our face should take or to provide you mindless entertainment with something important to you and perhaps meaningless to us?
